The art of Electronic Music Composing program includes modern music production techniques and instruction on today’s music making electronic instruments and drum machines.  Our staff engineer/producer/programmer John Krauss, has years of experience in our multi-platinum awarded recording facility.  He is highly skilled in the areas required to create well-constructed music tracks and “radio ready” finished songs.

  • Midi channels and their assignments
  • Implementation of “multi-timbral” outputs
  • Triggering sound modules and samplers
  • Quantizing, looping, syncopation, BPM calculations, sequencing software and other programming phases
  • Integration of the above with Pro Tools and other recording / mixing systems
  • Laying down or “over-dubbing” real tracks on top of your electronically programmed tracks.
